E.ON Suspends Advertisements, Posts on Facebook, Instagram
By Giulia Petroni
E.ON SE said Thursday that it has suspended all advertising and
posting on Facebook and Instagram.
"We expressly and resolutely oppose racism, hate speech and
discrimination. We also expect this clear attitude from our
partners," the German utility said. "In this context, we consider
it our responsibility to review our commitment and our role on
Facebook and Instagram."
E.ON joins a number of companies that have recently halted
advertising spending on Facebook due to the social media giant's
handling of hate speech and misinformation on its platforms.
